Rogue Rings Review - Five Stars

ROGUE'S RINGS GET FIVE STARS -

People who know me know that rarly does equipment blow my hair back. I look at equipment as something to be used, abused, disgarded and replaced. When looking at equipment one of the main points of performance I look for is easy of use. The other day we did Elizabeth with classes that varied in size from 10 to low twenties and one of the key problems equipment set up. We have 30 pairs of rings of Tyler's old and elite rings and have had lots of problems teaching people how to hang, thread and adjust the rings. If you have a garage or small affiliate, it is not a big deal. If you have 20 people doing a set up for a workout and you have to spend more time teaching people how to hang rings than it takes to use them, then there is a problem. Busy clients have limited time to train, it bothers me if I can't get a class equipped and set up in less than 10 minutes, regardless of size. If clients spend a lot of time getting and setting up gear, I look at it as someone stealing their time.

The UPS guy dropped off the Bill's New Rogue Rings today. From out of the box to hanging it was about 5 minutes with about 4 minutes getting them out of the box. The straps are heafty and adjustors robust. The ring itself is well machined and has a good grip surface. The real kay assest to the rings are the velcro strap for helping store the straps of the rings. Wow, that alone make the purchase of the rings worth it.

Now I have budget to replase all my old rings. Bill has the best rings I have seen for running a CrossFit affiliate. Hands down.

Douglas, are you going to be selling your old rings? I highly prefer my Rogues to the Elites, but I am looking to pick up a few more sets of rings.

Aaron,

Probably. I need some time to replace the set we have now. I just ordered 10 more of the Rogue rings and it should be another few weeks before I can order 20 more.

I will post it if I do.

Doug
